Backstory and Context
The park provides a convenient place for downtown workers, locals, Arizona State Students, and tourists to sit down and relax. The other main attraction is the historic A.E. England Building, a former car dealership built in 1926. It features the Fair Trade Cafe and also serves as a community center where various educational, musical and cultural events take place. Art exhibits are also presented here.
